Where do you guys buy most of your wax?

  1. I usually buy online, more specifically bbcexhange, ebay, and amazon. once in a while i go for blowout or d&a.


    just wondering if there are any smaller known sites that have good deals on wax that people have tried.

    I usually purchase mine at the LCS, but every now and then I will get them from Blowout, D&A, or Atlanta.

    I buy almost all of my cards from D&A, although I will turn to Blowout when the price difference is significant.
     
  5. How are the prices where you are in comparison to online? Usually around here, we can save 5-15 bucks a box (depending on product sometimes even more) by going online. But then you have to wait...

    The prices are pretty comparable, I would probably save a few bucks buying them online, but I like to support my local store.

    I would actually like to do the same thing, but my "local" store is 50 miles away from home. Unless I need a box right now, I'd rather save the gas and buy online.

    I have one that is only about 3-4 miles away, and another that is about 30 miles away. I am good friends with the guy who runs the one that is closer so he gives me some good deals.

    Well.. I happen to live in a country where theres no lcs or online stores that have cards.. I rarely buy boxes due to the high taxes over here, so I usual do a lot of groupbreak participation. But Ive used Dacardworld, and captain collect and the card kid on ebay..
     
  10. Just realized you're in Denmark! Definitely has to limit your collecting at times.

    Oh yeah, it does.. big time. There have been countless times where I've missed out on a possible pc add. And the taxes on anything over (roughly) $12-14 gets snagged in customs. And then you get a 25% of goods price plus a $25 fee, bill. So boxes can end up being a lot extra if they catch them. Plus shipping over here too!

    Luckily for me, I've made some great friends in the states who helps me get cards off ebay etc :)
